Who We Are

Purpose Statement


Share: We share the message and story of Jesus. We share the message of Jesus: that God loves all people and desires for us to respond to God’s love with faith and love. We share the story of Jesus’ teachings, life, death, and resurrection.

We also share God’s blessings with others. We generously share our wealth, possessions, and blessings with those in need. We strive to help to feed the hungry, mend the broken hearted, and strengthen the poor in spirit.

Disciple: We make and become more faithful disciples. We make disciples by mentoring and guiding others in their journeys with God. We offer learning, faith-inspiring, and growing opportunities.

We strive to become more faithful disciples by attending worship, Sunday school, Bible studies, and other faith-building opportunities. We commit ourselves to the personal spiritual disciplines of Bible reading, praying, and worshipping.

Serve: We serve our church and others in the name of Jesus Christ. We serve our Willow View United Methodist Church by being active in servant ministries and volunteering at Willow View. We take on tasks and duties that others do not want all for the sake of God’s Kingdom.

We serve others by being active in local, state, and national civic clubs and organizations and by doing the work of ministry. We understand that we are God’s feet, hands, and voice in our world.
